“Work HARD, play HARD!”
“Achieve now, you can rest when you’re dead!”
Speaking from experience, that’s a surefire way to burn-out.
Really, that mindset cultivates an “I’ll be happy when…” attitude.
Why not find a way to work joyfully?
All while enjoying the process.
“No Pain No Gain?”
Sure, but isn’t it possible to find a way to enjoy that pain?
I think it is. It’s just a matter of using your perception to your benefit.
If your mind works for you, you’ll naturally choose happiness.
And there’s substantial scientific and medical evidence to show that when you’re in happy states of mind your body and brain work at their best.
Working at your best, do you think it’s possible to get 8 hours of work done in 4, or even 2?
Working at your best, don’t you think it’s possible to find creative solutions to your everyday mundane tasks?
Those that society considers successful—those making 6 figures, millions, billions, in top physical shape—all have the same amount of time as you. They just apply themselves in different, more effective ways.
